Ingress protection ratings refer to the rank of protection given by an enclosure, against dust and liquids. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating represents protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (water).
Having a value of IPX4, the Audio Technica ATH TWX9's rating for solids indicates that no data available to specify a protection rating, and the second value of 4 means that they can withstand low pressure spray similar to that of a shower head when tilted at 180° for 10 minutes.

Active noise cancellation makes use of more advanced technology to actively counter noise. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern of incoming noise and then generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) then adding -1 (counter sound by the device) to make 0 which results in a reduced level of noise.

Audio Technica ATH TWX9 driver unit is 5.8mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is basically a mini speaker that produces sound in the device, the unit size dictates the sound made by the device.
Nokia Clarity Earbuds 2 Pro driver unit is 13mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Audio Technica ATH TWX9 by 7.2mm , a common assumption that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so yeah, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not mean that they deliver better quality sound.
The Audio Technica ATH TWX9's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device generates low recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Nokia Clarity Earbuds 2 Pro's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices can make sound with equal bass
Audio Technica ATH TWX9's highest frequency is at 40000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well an audio device generates high audible frequencies and if it makes any adjustments to the signal on its way through.
Nokia Clarity Earbuds 2 Pro's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that Audio Technica ATH TWX9 produce a clearer and crispier treble than the Nokia Clarity Earbuds 2 Pro
SPL, is the level of pressure of sound, in decibels, dB, Audio Technica ATH TWX9's measurement is 102dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9's battery life is 6 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average for a single charge. A device's battery life is given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
Nokia Clarity Earbuds 2 Pro's battery life is more than that of Audio Technica ATH TWX9 by 3 hours . Every time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less playing time.
